If you’re a lifelong fan of the Phoenix Suns, losing Steve Nash can’t be easy. The fact that he went to your Pacific Division rival, the Los Angeles Lakers, probably makes it even worse
Given everything that has transpired over the last week, you can’t really fault lifelong fans for being really, really emotional these days.
Even if their lives and fanhoods have spanned all of four years.
Case in point, this girl
The really interesting thing about this clip, though, was the aftermath. Via Yahoo! Sports:
The video made such an impression that hours after it hit, Nash himself re-Tweeted a call out for more information about the girl or her mother so that he could send her his autograph.
Now, whatever you do, DON’T tell her about Santa.
(Kudos Yahoo! Sports)
